We popped in here for lunch whilst at Blackpool Sands beach, it's located on the beach so very convenient. The cafe itself is nothing special to look at which may put some people off however the food is good, the portion sizes are reasonable and the quality is very good. I only have two reservations, the food was quite expensive... More

£7 parking fee, increasingly wet rain and stones that attacked the soles of anybody foolish enough to attempt anything sporty in bare feet: sounds like a great day out by the seaside in Britain! As it was, our three generational gathering did have a good time, and what really saved the day was the Venus cafe and bar. A prime... More

We had dinner here and loved the outlook over the beach. It is very casual - you order at the counter. We had the mackerel and tomato and onion salad and an extra side salad - really good fresh food.

This place has a great location indeed and the decor is all fine. The restaurant does feel a little fast food with communal ketchup pumps and having to order at the counter. I guess this is for the day trade but in the evening they could get a waiter or two ! 4 of us had steaks and 2 other... More

The plan was to eat here every night while we were on holiday in a nearby village, and relax and take in the sea view. On the first night the food was good but my plate was stacked high with french fries, enough for 2 people. Would have preferred a smaller portion of chips and a reduced price as it's... More

We had take away from the cafe at Blackpool sands. Food ranged from meals to pasties and there was a licensed bar serving wine beers and lager, cider and soft drinks. There were eating areas inside and outside on a decked area overlooking the beach. A beach shop adjoined the cafe which was a bit high on prices and lots... More

We enjoyed a coffee and cake before exploring the beach. Coffee was good. and there were gluten free cake options. After a walk we later returned, this time I had a bottle of local cider which was good. Service was friendly, and there is a great view of the beach.

Great cafe next to a really nice shingle beach in a glorious little cove with lovely countryside all around. Great place to just sit outside with just a drink or have some good food.
